His mother Ayesha told the Hindustan Times: "His father has a tremendous screen presence and our son has the same quality. That is his gift.

"Tiger never wanted to become an actor. He was very keen to get into athletics and play professional basketball but it still has a while to go in our country. And he is so attached to his home and the country that he didn't want to go to the US.

"Despite being from a film family, Tiger has had a regular upbringing. He is a very level-headed boy, who knows how to handle things. And so he knows the kind of expectations there are from him."

Last year Tiger revealed that he has never received formal acting lessons.

He is currently shooting romantic comedy Heropanti, which will feature model Kriti Sanon in the lead role.
